Bookmark and Share


What will I learn?
The Complete GC & GC-MS course is built from the 3-day Practical Essentials of GC & GC-MS and the 2-day GC & GC-MS Clinic courses to provide a complete training solution enabling you to understand your Gas Chromatograph or GC-MS instrument, develop applications, troubleshoot & maintain it.

What is covered?
This course covers all the practical theory you need to know about Gas Chromatography and its related techniques including gas chromatography-mass spectrometry; gases and plumbing; sample introduction like split, splitless, on-column and large volume injection; analytical columns; GC detectors and mass selective detectors; data analysis; and sampling techniques like headspace, SPME, pyrolysis, thermal desorption, purge & trap, liquid-liquid and solid phase extraction.

It also looks at how to choose the GC & GC-MS techniques for an application, set-up the instrument, how to develop & optimise methods and then finally how to maintain & troubleshoot the instrument, techniques and method. This advanced course also takes a brief look at advanced techniques to help solve those very tricky or complex applications including Selective Discrimination, Deconvolution, Two-Dimensional GC (GC+GC & GCxGC) and Chemometrics

How can I attend?
You can attend the 5-day course all at once or, learn the basics in the first 3 days, go back to the lab to implement them and then join us at a later point to attend the 2-day GC & GC-MS Clinic course.

This 5-day course is recognised by the Royal Society of Chemistry for purposes of Continuing Professional Development. Members of the RSC will receive a 15% discount on submission of their RSC membership number.

A FREE glossary on GC & GC-MS is provided with this course!
